The Indigo Spell - 
Richelle Mead
Released: February 12, 2013
Publisher: Penguin Teen AUS
Synopsis: In the aftermath of a forbidden moment that rocked Sydney to her core, she finds herself struggling to draw the line between her Alchemist teachings and what her heart is urging her to do. Then she meets alluring, rebellious Marcus Finch--a former Alchemist who escaped against all odds, and is now on the run. Marcus wants to teach Sydney the secrets he claims the Alchemists are hiding from her. But as he pushes her to rebel against the people who raised her, Sydney finds that breaking free is harder than she thought. There is an old and mysterious magic rooted deeply within her. And as she searches for an evil magic user targeting powerful young witches, she realizes that her only hope is to embrace her magical blood--or else she might be next.

What it's about: The gang is all back in the third book of the Bloodlines series - and it's as epic as the rest of the books. While still trying to protect Jill, Sydney now has to find Marcus, keeping playing with magic with Ms Terwilliger and most importantly, keeping Adrian at arms lengths. Or maybe not so much...

What I thought: So many damned feels. So many.

Huzzah for another outstanding book by Richelle Mead. There is no stopping the bouts of amazing that pour out of her books and into the hearts and souls of every reader out there. Let's start with Marcus. Yes, we finally get to meet the lush man that he is, and I guarantee many a reader will swoon (and leave Adrian behind). We learn more about who he is, why he ran from the Alchemists and what he's planning to do next. While it did surprise me, it didn't completely shock me. But he is definitely a new lovable character to add to our collections.
Ms Terwilliger plays a prominent role again, and has Sydney out on magical missions, and honing her skills for an upcoming threat. And of course, there is Adrian. The one we all love to death, who is still trying (and possibly succeeding a little) in winning Sydney's affections.

This book kept me up late at night, not wanting to leave a second of it awesomeness unread. Thumbs up to another fantastic addition to the Bloodlines series.

The Good: I didn't think it was possible for Richelle Mead to keep coming up with new things, but she has an uncanny way of getting the reader addicted to her novels. The best kind of addiction to get.

The Bad: We all know Sydney is practically Wonder Woman herself, but did she have slightly too much on her plate this time, that made it feel unrealistic? (Yes, unrealistic despite the fact the book has vampires).

I know I always say this, but HURRY UP NEXT BOOK! I mean, pretty please?!
